Books in the City is combined with Art Supplies in the City. I've found its a great place to get off-the-beaten path cards, journals and other writing accessories. Also, the art material variety rivals Utrecht. They don't have as much as Blick, but the prices are about the same if not better. They offer 10% off to students who sign up for their loyalty card. Also, they offer free mat board cutting during finals which is a complete lifesaver. As far as books go, I didn't see any fiction books or anything like your typical Barnes and Noble. They sell college textbooks and also buy back books for about the same price as Becks.
